Construction of Maude Moore Wood Elementary School, formerly Elementary School No. 35, is well underway, according to new photos released by Terry Abbott, Chief Communications Officer for Killeen Independent School District.
“Killeen ISD’s newly named Maude Moore Wood Elementary School is coming along fast, as the new drone photos show,” Abbott said. The school is in the White Rock subdivision, between Blue Nile Drive and Obsidian Drive, Morganite Lane and Pyrite Drive.
The project is set for completion in June and scheduled to open for the 2019-20 school year, Abbott said.
The school will house 1,050 students, including the temporary students from East Ward Elementary school. The current East Ward Elementary campus is set to close and be demolished at the end of this school year. A new replacement campus is set to be constructed on the existing site, using money frompart of the $426 million bond approved by the school board and voters in May.
